Jump aboard their 30’ Islander boat that can carry up to 5 anglers of all skill levels in full style and comfort. It comes with a restroom, GPS, fishfinder, lifejackets, a fighting chair, and an ice-box.

You’ll be targeting the A-listers such as Marlin, Sailfish, Pompano, Roosterfish, Cubera Snapper, and Broomtail Grouper. The captain will show you the hottest spots and the most efficient techniques, including bottom fishing, trolling, and jigging.

The charter will cover the use of top-notch fishing gear, live bait, lures, and fishing licenses. Food and drinks (such as beer, soft drinks, and water) are provided free of charge. After the trip is done, the first mate will even clean and fillet your catch, so tips for his hard work are highly appreciated.

I started guiding at age 19, and for 40 years have operated boats from Alaska to Panama. I love my work as it really has never been a job. I get to go fishing everyday. Please come and join me to share some of the knowledge I have acquired over the years.
